The Truman Show — November 2016



Luke, Tito and Will discuss the 1998 satirical science-fiction feature, “The Truman Show,” starring Jim Carrey and directed by Peter Weir. The three agree the moving picture has a negative view of humanity’s media consumption and perhaps on art and artists, but they cannot agree on the classification of the moving picture as a flick, movie or film.

For the month of December, Luke recommends “The Babadook” on Netflix.

Cinema Paradiso — October 2016



Luke, Tito and Will discuss Tito’s recommendation, “Cinema Paradiso.” The 1998 Italian drama was written and directed by Giuseppe Tornatore. The Bildungsroman, or coming of age story, typically deals with someone’s formative years, but Tito argues people are always changing, adapting or growing up. Tito also references Thomas Wolfe’s “Look Homeward, Angel” and wonders whether or not you have to leave home in order to fully realize your potential.

For the month of November, Will nominates “The Truman Show,” which is on Netflix.

Full Metal Jacket — September 2016



Luke, Tito and Will discuss Stanley Kubrick’s “Full Metal Jacket.” The 1987 war film stars Matthew Modine, Vincent D’Onofrio and R. Lee Emery. Luke, Tito and Will talk about the duality of man and how this moving picture seems to have two distinct narratives.

For the month of October, Tito recommends “Cinema Paradiso” on Netflix.
